Hello Friend

Hello Friend card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Concord & 9th
 Here's my card for the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. It's a pretty literal interpretation of the sketch using stamps and dies from Concord & 9th.

I used the Modern Frame die set to create my frame from pretty gold foil cardstock. It is embellished with a spray of flowers and leaves cut with dies from the same set. After adhering the frame to the palest of pink card bases, I arranged the flowers and leaves along the lower left side of the frame. For dimension, I used foam tape on the backs of the flowers and dotted one of the branches with some pink Liquid Pearls. As usual, I managed to smear the Liquid Pearls, but I think I fixed it. I have a love-hate relationship with those things! The sentiment is a combination of stamps from the Modern Frame and Say Hello stamp sets. I stamped them in gold at the center of the frame to finish the card. I should have heat embossed the words, but after my Liquid Pearls debacle, I decided to keep things simple!

Materials Used:
Modern Frame and Say Hello stamp sets, Modern Frame dies (Concord & 9th); Delicata Golden Glitz ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Certainly Celery, Barely Banana, and Regal Rose cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Rose Petals and Gold Foil cardstock (Recollections); Petal Pink Liquid Pearls (Ranger); foam tape
